Home / News & media website / Mobile / YouTube Officially Releases This Feature To The iPhone


You'd probably think that it's in the best interest of an application to be designed to work seamlessly on multiple devices and operating systems such as Apple and Android and, for the most part, you'd be right. But we have to understand that this is Google and Apple we're talking about...

On an Android device, you can open up YouTube and switch it to a Picture In Picture (PiP) mode which essentially turns the YouTube video window into a mini player so the user can switch back to using their phone as normal whilst not exiting or minimising the video.

However, Apple didn't adopt this feature very well as they are all about the user experience and essentially disapproved YouTube's API on their mobile devices. So not to bother too much about it, YouTube decided to remove the feature completely on iPhones...until now.

It has been confirmed now that YouTube Premium subscribers can now enjoy PiP experiences.
